Activities in Exeter

Exeter Scholars

The College of Social Sciences and International Studies contributes to the University's Exeter Scholars programme. Exeter Scholars is a free programme giving you the opportunity to find out more about university, develop a passion for a chosen subject, and gain first-hand experience of student life at the University of Exeter. The programme offers opportunities for both South West-based and national students.

As part of the South West Exeter Scholars programme for Year 12 students, the College of Social Sciences and International Studies offers pathways in Politics and Philosophy and Sociology, Criminology and Anthropology. The deadline for applications is Friday 2nd November 2018.

For further information on how your students can participate in the various Exeter Scholars programmes, please visit our dedicated Exeter Scholars website. 

Pathways to Law

Pathways to Law is an innovative and exciting programme, which provides fantastic opportunities for sixth form students who are interested in law. Part of Exeter Scholars, run by the Sutton Trust and funded by the Legal Education Foundation, Pathways is offered at 12 UK universities, including the University of Exeter. The programme targets high-achieving students in state schools and colleges who will be the first generation in their family to attend university, and aims to raise their aspirations and provide them with the skills and confidence to pursue a successful legal career.

Teaching Enrichment Days

Our annual calendar of Teaching Enrichment activities aims to offer a wide range of focussed skills development sessions that support the delivery of school curriculum. Designed to align with a range of pre- and post-16 subject areas, these sessions – run and supported by university staff and students – bring participants to one of our campuses with the aim of supporting their school studies whilst providing an opportunity to explore the University of Exeter itself.

For a full list of opportunities, please visit our Teacher's Pages.

A Day in the Life

Our Day In The Life programme brings individuals or small school groups onto campus to spend a day in the shoes of the University of Exeter student.

Accompanied by University of Exeter Student Ambassadors, students will attend undergraduate lectures, seminars and other academic sessions, take part in a full campus tour, and have the opportunity to speak to staff and current students about the course, student life, the university, the city, and the careers and opportunities available beyond graduation.

Other Events

Constructing Consent in the Courtroom – Festival of Social Science (FOSS)

Date - Tuesday 6th November 2018

Year group – Year 12

Location – Exeter Castle

This event will consider the role of the courtroom in society, and specifically how the institution tackles the contemporary observation of a 'rape culture'. The topic is a prominent civic issue for a young adult audience for whom the debates around a ‘lad culture’ and the ‘blurred lines’ of sexual conduct are particularly prominent.

This event is likely to appeal to those studying Law, Politics, Sociology or Criminology; however, the event is open to any students with an interest in the topic.

For booking student places for your school, please use the School Booking system.

Please note: numbers are currently limited to 17 per school, if you require more places please contact the outreach team on the email below.
